BOTTOM-LINE:
Team Dolan works surprisingly well together.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
Dolan brings Kinsey a cold case -- an 18-year-old case of homicide for an unidentified Jane Doe.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
The plot device Kinsey working with Dolan while helping out a retired old-timer who was one of the original detectives on the case is flat out awesome. Kind of like the series Cold Case that was on TV a few years after the book was published. And the teamwork of three of them is a nice twist on the traditional "go it alone" storylines of most of Kinsey's cases. As with some of the previous stories, she ends up in a small town where everyone knows everyone and the motives are all potentially interconnected. Finally, while there is some drama with Kinsey's extended family, for once it ends up being relatively positive overall.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
Dolan and Stacey bicker like an old married couple, and it gets tedious. The story is also about 30% longer than most of the novels, and it does drag in a few places.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

A good old fashioned detective story about a real life Jane Doe murder mystery. I haven't read the others in the series but enjoyed it as a standalone book. Good pace, and likeable characters. Recommend.

Not her best novel; momentum slows down.
